Former NJPW STRONG Openweight Tag Team Champions and members of Will Ospreay’s United Empire are astonishingly without a place to call their wrestling home.
Kyle Fletcher and Mark Davis better known as Aussie Open are one of the industry’s most exciting teams and after having a great run in 2022 are yet to wrestle this year. Their last match took place at World Tag League 2022 Final on December 12th. They were defeated by Hirooki Goto and YOSHI-HASHI known as Bishamon meaning they missed out on an opportunity to challenge for the IWGP Tag Team Championships at Wrestle Kingdom 17.
Since then the popular duo haven’t been seen on the scene at all. One-half of the team, Davis took to social media to address their absence and reveal that the Australian duo are not only without any bookings but are not contracted to any promotion or company.
“the last time i saw Kyle was the morning our flight landed after world tag league
aussie open have no contracted deals
aussie open have no confirmed tag bookings
sometimes you can put everything you have into something
sometimes it’s not enough”
Aussie Open Competed In A 5-Star Match At NJPW Queen’s Quest II
Aussie Open formed in 2017 on the UK Independent scene and quickly established themselves as one of the best tag teams in the business.
In October of last year, they tore it up in London against FTR. The teams headlined the card and stole the show with a superb back-and-forth match-up that thrilled the fans packing out the Crystal Palace Indoor Arena.
This wasn’t the only match that scored them 5 stars in 2022. On the August 24th episode of Dynamite, the duo teamed with Ospreay to take on Death Triangle in the first round of the Trios World Championship Tournament. Plus the aforementioned World Tag League 2022 Final against Bishoman was also given the 5-star treatment.
Despite putting on awesome matches in NJPW and AEW, Fletcher and Davis also wrestled for Rev Pro, OTT and PWG. At HOG they challenged the Briscoes for the tag team titles before making appearances for IMPACT! Wrestling. The Australians faced off against Frankie Kazarian and IMPACT! World Champion Josh Alexander.
